this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Nebraska does something cool.
Nebraska wrote some computer code?
Edit: Damn it Freddie Mercury you're supposed to be dead.
Corrected the embed problem
I learned how to read this when I was the pilot for the Nebuchadnezzar on our way back to Zion. It says something about a 7 year old taking a 68 yard touchdown back in their spring game.
Edit: This was funnier when it was just code up there. Now I just sound wierd.
...it just so happens that I spent the weekend drinking 15 liters of champagne too! Go Blue!
At this point its more mainstream cool than hipster cool. The hipster cool phase happened another day that Michigan wasn't playing a national championship game.
my desk neighbor must be cutting onions
This wasn't on the board twice or on Saturday or on ESPN all weekend.
I know its been a crazy week , but the story was already shared, I still gave you a upvote though because its such a great story
Not news... this was all over every news outlet, including ESPN, all weekend ad nauseum.
With that said, it did get very dusty in my living room when I first saw this story... damn allergies. Good for Nebraska
the turf over there. I think it was either wheat or corn dust.
Nebraska seems like good people
The unexpected good thing about this event that while really cool thing for the Huskers to do for the kid, this video is winning the Top Video replay ever on ESPN. That means we won't have to watch Clowney knock Vincent Smith's head, (helmet,) off every week.
but his name is jackoff man
...an awesome story indeed. Even if it's the 3rd time it's been posted and the 3,000th time I've seen it in the past few days.
They should have dressed the kid in a Wisconsin uniform to make it even more authentic for him.
I also really like that Nebraska made his run part of the official stats for the Spring Game and, even better, it was the longest run of the day. Although this thread has appeared once or twice in the intervening time since Saturday, I think we can let this particular one stand - it's been a few days and it is an awesome, touching story. Many kudos to Nebraska and congratulations to Jack Hoffman on his first official collegiate TD.
secretly hoping that one of the players would clothesline the kid just before he crossed the goal line?
OK, maybe it was just me, then.
Little chance of that nowadays...you know, with Suh having been drafted by the Lions and all.
Thanks for posting . . . I love every story out there like this.
...when Nebraska does something cool.
I was a big fan of this for multiple reasons. Way to show some class Huskers
Where was the Michgan staff on this kid? He outran freaking Taylor Martinez! Hoke is not an elite recruiter.
That was a beautiful gesture. Good work Red.
That kid looks like every offensive player on Wisconsin!
This was seriously awesome thing to do. Now espn broadcasting it while I was eating lunch with business colleagues...not cool...man card lost.
